Sometimes -s, Sometimes -es Again

1. When you want to make a plural out of a singular noun that ends in the sounds _____, _____, _____, or ____, you add the suffix _____, and when you make a plural out of a singular noun that ends in a <y> with a _____ letter right in front of it, you change the _____ to _____ and add the suffix _____, but with other singular nouns you just add the suffix _____.

2. Analyze each of these plural nouns into its singular noun plus suffix:

Plural Noun = Singular Noun + Suffix
units = unit + s
taxes = +
universes = +
friends = +
bunches = +
lines = +
goddesses = +
nights = +
thirties = +
brushes = +
recesses = +
foxes = +
companies = +

3. The rule for the suffix that turns singular nouns into plurals is just the same as the rule for the suffix that adds the meaning “now” to verbs:

You add the meaning “now” to a verb that ends in the sounds _____, _____, _____, or ____ by adding the suffix _____, and you add the meaning “now” to a verb that ends in a <y> with a ____ letter right in front of it by changing the _____ to _____ and adding the suffix _____, but with other verbs you just add the suffix _____.

4. Add either -s or -es to each of these verbs

Verb + Suffix = Verb with the Meaning “Now”
fl\cancel{y} + i + es = flies
hurry + =
attach + =
read + =
glimpse + =
recess + =
quiz + =
obey + =
fizz + =
weigh + =
seem + =
brush + =
cough + =
try + =

Word Find

This Find is shaped like ‘ES’ because it contains twenty-two verbs that end with the suffix -es. See how many you can find. As you find and circle each one, copy it into the blanks below. If you can find more than twelve, you have done well. Twenty or more is super.
